The Deacon’s Ministry exists to provide ministry and care to the people of First Baptist Church. This ministry is carried out through a shepherding approach. Each active deacon is assigned a number of church families that make up their “flock.” The deacon is responsible for communicating with their flock on a regular basis, identifying any needs, and assisting them with any needs related to the church. In addition, there are four specific ministry teams that the deacons lead:
• Home Repair - The primary purpose of this team is to make minor home repairs for those church members who are not reasonably able to do themselves.
• Bereavement - The Bereavement team ministers to those in the church family that have experienced the death of a family member.
• Prayer - The Bible directs Christians to “pray without ceasing.” This ministry team is charged with helping the church be a “house of prayer.”
• Evangelism - The Evangelism team seeks to lead the church body to be more intentional in sharing the story of God’s love through Christ for all humanity.
